Gov’t to bar online gambling

Prime Minister Hun Sen reiterated on Saturday that online gambling will be barred from the Kingdom from next year. He stressed that it brought more bad than good to the country’s economy and puts the Kingdom at risk of money laundering, organised crime groups and terrorism.

Speaking when he opened the 8th Sea Festival in Kampot province on Saturday, he expressed his commitment to eliminating gambling altogether.
